ATTENTION ALL BUSINESS OWNERS
As you’re probably aware, the second phase of the Highway 61 reconstruction project in downtown Red Wing is set to kickoff this spring. There may be times during the construction that we feel like the entire downtown area is one large construction zone, but there are things we can begin doing now to “survive and thrive during construction.”
You’re invited to join us on March 30 & 31 for a two-day technical assistance visit and refresher course provided by Red Wing Downtown Main Street in partnership with the Main Event Committee to forward our community’s plans to “survive and thrive during construction”. There are two ways to participate and benefit and it is free to attend.
Evening Session | Wednesday, March 30 | 5:30 to 7:00 PM | Red Wing Ignite
Morning Session | Thursday, March 31 | 7:30 to 9:00 AM | Red Wing Ignite
Participation is open to everyone. The session’s interactive format will provide a chance to learn what other communities and businesses have done to survive and thrive during construction, and to share ideas for ways that Red Wing stakeholders can work together to overcome challenges presented by the construction project.
Wednesday, March 30 | Limited Time Slots Available! | Main Street Office
Thursday, March 31 | Limited Time Slots Available! | Main Street Office
A limited number of 45-minute one-on-one consultations are available for downtown business owners. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and discuss specific challenges and ways for your business to survive and thrive during construction. E-mail us to schedule a one-to-one consultation.
